FUN AT THE LAUNDROMAT WITH SOFIA MCLANE

April 11th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Social Commentary

I don’t know what got into me. It had already been a long day. Drilling Nodari on fielding and throwing now that he’s joined the OLGAA (“Our Lady Of Grace Athletic Association”) Little League. Then I had a huge “discussion” with one of the producers on Europa about how I was NOT happy. The show is in a bit of turmoil and it’s either going to be great or a fiasco. So either way you should get your tickets.

Then changing sheets, doing dishes, cleaning, feeding and washing Sofia numerous times, wrestling with Nodari, it’s tough being a dad. But I wasn’t finished. I did the baby’s bottles and asked my wife if it was time to do the comforters, and it was. So at seven o’clock, needing to clear my head I offered to go and do the comforters.

Now the Laundromat that is just downstairs from us closed (high time). They had old machines, the dryers sucked out your quarters and the place was generally, well, filthy. Filthy to the point that we decided it was time to invest in our own machine. So they lost our business other than for the mats, comforters and such. But without them around, I had to walk a good quarter mile and offered to take Sopo to give mom a break. One of her molars is coming in so….

yeah.

I was still stewing in my head about all the events that are going on in my life when I realized I was in front of the place. It was new but we’d never had any reason to patronize it. Until now.

Everything worked, people were hanging out watching Guadalajara versus America in soccer. And I quickly took Sofia out of her stroller as she was waving to people already and chomping at the bit to make friends. The best thing though were the dryers. For only 2 quarters each (I split the three comforters up) I got em all done in 14 minutes. That’s because these dryers worked. After a quick stroll we were on our way.

Just in time to see Joba Chamberlain get blown out in Fenway.
